Yeh ,Life Is Strange 2 is like that , it's like a 2 year gap between playing it on release day and actually finishing the game ,just insane.
But even then it will probably get a load of update patches in the months following :)
I tend to ignore games like that .
I remember one called Blues and Bullets ,never got past the first one or two episodes ,studio imploded and left behind a half finished game.
Wouldn't have happened at the rate it does now if not for this "digital age" we're living in.
Though i would say ,Itch is sort of THE place for something like this ,a chance for a dev to get feedback by dropping a free download for gamers to try.
